We are Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking. We want to create a nation where walking is the natural choice for everyday, local journeys; free from congested roads and pollution, reducing the risk of preventable illnesses and social isolation. We want to achieve a better walking environment and to inspire people of all generations to enjoy the benefits the simple act of walking brings.

For 90 years we’ve been a beacon for walking. In our early days our campaigning led to the UK’s first zebra crossings and speed limits. Now our campaigns and local projects deliver real change to overcome barriers to walking and our groundbreaking initiatives such as the world’s biggest Walk to School campaign encourage millions of people to walk.

Join us and together we will create a walking nation.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to join our campaigns team as Engagement Manager to provide maternity cover for a fixed term period 12 months (with a possibility of extension after this period).

You will play an important role in developing our growing community of Local Groups, members and supporters and will focus on supporting people across the UK to take action to create better streets in their area.

This is an exciting time to join Living Streets as we are looking to strengthen our engagement work – you will play a pivotal role in shaping our public facing activities, online presence and campaign actions. You will develop engaging campaign materials for use both online and offline, oversee the development of our refreshed membership offer and provide resources and guidance to our thriving Local Group network. You will showcase the work of our supporters and Local Groups both internally and externally and share best practice across our networks. As the main contact for our Local Groups volunteer management experience is essential.

This is an interesting and varied role and an ability to embrace a diversity of tasks is essential.

Closing date: 27 August 2019 (5pm)
Interview date: 10 September 2019
